the circumstances surrounding elizabeth taylor's death. >> well, we know, carol, that elizabeth taylor was hospitalized six weeks ago with congestive heart failure, something she had been dealing with for a long time. there was a lot of hope in this last hospitalization that she would have returned home. unfortunately, it was not meant to be, but her publicist said she died peacefully at cedars sinai medical center in los angeles. but what a life, what a legacy. she was certainly one of the most beautiful women in the world, as she was called so many times throughout the years. think about all the memorable roles that she played. "cat on a hot tin roof," "cleopatra." those all made her the first actress, carol, to receive a million dollars for a single part. now actresses are getting 20, $25 million, but really, elizabeth taylor is the one who paved the way. >> people forget she was sort of like the angelina jolie of her day. every movement was followed by the paparazzi back then.
